We are a professional and talented band with many years' experience specialising in traditional music in pubs and clubs, and at schools and colleges, festivals, weddings, parties and corporate functions. All the musicians have been performing, touring and recording for many years and some are award-winning performers. Please visit our website at http://www.wraggletaggle.com/ for more information.
We are flexible enough as regards personnel, instrumentation and musical style to be able to tailor a band to your specific requirements, and go out as anything from a duo to a six-piece, amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller. All bands are punctual, smart and sober, but still good fun!
An example of a duo would be myself on guitar/vocals together with our banjo player. Other instruments such as concertina, accordion, fiddle, flute, tin-whistle, or double bass can be brought in to enlarge the band. Speciality instruments such as Scottish or Irish bagpipes, bodhran (Irish drum) or traditional dancers are also available by arrangement (subject to availability & musical considerations).
Our most common format for a ceilidh consists of four musicians plus a caller who will teach the dances from scratch - no experience needed! A ceilidh is something really different and ideal for a successful party, as it is a fun way to get families, friends and colleagues to mix and meet and because all age groups become involved. The faster dances are an energetic work out, and we also play in a more relaxed romantic mood.
Wraggle Taggle play traditional Irish, Scottish, English and American songs and tunes with innovation, flair and vitality.
